Hello gamers and gamettes! This is GODmadethunder here with the May 25th, 2016 edition of Way Back Wednesday!! This weeks game is Turok 2: Seeds of Evil for the Nintendo 64, which will soon be remastered for the Xbox One.
Admit it, growing up we all wanted to shoot dinosaurs with cool guns. Isn’t that every kids dream? Well that dream becomes a reality, or should I say virtual reality in Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. In this game you play as a whole brand new Turok, some blue lady tells you that you have to go into all the lands blah blah blah and defeat the evil blah blah blah. Let’s just say this game is a lot more gameplay oriented, the story never really catches on and the voice acting for the N64 is soooo bad that even if i tried to understand I probably still wouldn’t be able to. There’s six levels in the game and before every level you get a little debriefing on your objectives by the blue lady. Now this is where the fun starts. You work your way through each level to progress to the next. Throughout the game you will find new guns and power ups while fighting evil dinosaurs. There are cheat codes for you cheaters that just want to blast away will all the cool unlockable guns, but why would you try to cheat at such a good game?
Trying to play a first person game with an N64 controller is never easy. Simply because my fingers are so used to the Xbox and PlayStation dual joystick method, not to mention the fact that N64 joysticks wear out over time. It works out pretty well once you get used to it and that’s when the game becomes extremely fun. You get assault rifles, grenade launchers, pistols, bow and arrows (looking like Hawkeye out there), flamethrowers, fists, you name it and it’s probably a dinosaur killer in this game. It’s so satisfying to eliminate enemies in this game. Even though the story is single player, there is a multiplayer mode that offers the traditional Deathmatch as well as Capture the Flag. Much like Goldeneye, Turok 2 supports up to 4 players split screen.
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is a great game. It takes us back to the humble days of First Person Shooters before the genre dominated the video game industry. It also gives us an insight to the greatness of the N64 and it really makes you appreciate the console for being one of the first to change the way we play.
I always thought it would be hilarious to watch a Call of Duty fanboy try to quickscope in this one. *crying emoji*
Turok 2 gets a 10 out of 10 from me. GODmadethunder out!
